About Dare To Serve, Second Edition
Become a Dare to Serve Leader!
How do you transform an ailing company into an industry darling? Adopt servant leadership. When Cheryl Bachelder was named CEO of Popeyes in 2007, the stock price had slipped from $34 in 2002 to $13. The brand was stagnant, the team was discouraged, and the franchisees were just plain angry. Nine years later, restaurant sales were up 45 percent, restaurant profits had doubled, and the stock price was over $61. Some see servant leadership as incongruent with results, but this book confirms that challenging people to reach a daring destination, while treating them with dignity, creates the conditions for superior performance. In this updated edition, Bachelder includes her post-Popeyes observations and new examples of how you can switch your leadership from self to serve.
Praise For Dare To Serve
When I speak with leaders, it is hard for them to grasp that servant leadership drives both great performance and great human satisfaction. Cheryl Bachelder provides an inspiring manual on how to be a Dare-to-Serve leader who drives superior results.
This is the kind of leadership so desperately needed today. Cheryl’s engaging story offers a clear path for leaders to follow, and what makes her message so compelling are the tremendous results she’s produced. I highly recommend this book.
From beginning to end, Dare to Serve is truly a masterpiece. I am sharing it with many friends, including those I mentor.
